Principal November/December 2019: The Principal's Guide to Leadership

This issue of Principal magazine commemorates the 2019 publication of NAESP’s Leading Learning Communities: Pillars, Practices, and Priorities for Effective Principals. In its third edition, this hallmark standards document is organized around three mutually supportive and mutually dependent pillars of the principal’s role: building culture, empowering people, and optimizing systems. The articles in this issue drill down on corresponding practices that range from engaging with families in multiple generations to using data to assess student growth. They are meant to aid in your leadership development as you strive to impact educational equity, close achievement gaps, and deliver a safe and secure learning environment for the communities you serve.
This issue of Principal is also accompanied by a Leading Lessons guide, “Shared Vision, Shared Success,” which aligns with NAESP’s new Leading Learning Communities standards.
